Paint condition doesn’t look too good through the film of dirt..
Still, at least the interior is in a pretty decent shape!
Random marks/scuffs dotted around..
First up? Wheels!
Because of their dark chrome finish, I opted against Megs Wheel Brightener this time! G101 and Megs Super-Degreaser did the trick. (Using my finger-tips to scrape out the inch thick layer of muck just inside the arch lip)
Wheels were later sealed with JetSEAL901 and, looked very well indeed (minus the odd curb mark..)
Sills and shuts cleaned with G101.
Snowfoam delivered after a wetting down..
Badges, petrol-filler housing, panel gaps etc cleaned with a fine brush.
I had to spend a good ten minutes rinsing this car to ensure all trapped grit was released.
After this, re-foamed and washed with Born To Be Mild two bucket combo..
Ah, I found me a friend! (I think it must have been hungry ALL day; there wasn’t five minutes that went by that it didn’t “meow” (I found myself doing it back?! Huh?!))
Time to clay. Sonus Green before and after:
